Dickson House Cultural Centre, Kuwait City

3.5
See the possessions of a British colonial administrator from 1920s at Dickson House Cultural Centre. With his wife, Harold Richard Patrick Dickson lived in this house until his death. Dickson wrote books on Kuwait, and the government as well as locals respected him. After the Iraqi invasion, the government restored his home and exhibited his documents. In addition to letters and documents from that period, this house presents the rare example of 19th century Kuwaiti architectural style. See rare documents as you walk through the complex's 30 rooms.

    A lovely historical visit. The Morris Humber in the courtyard brings a smile as does the addition of the drawing room onto a traditional house - how British.  more »

Where to stay in Kuwait City

Few look much further than the peninsula of Kuwait City when looking for accommodations. And with good reason too, with plenty of attractions by the waterfront and a wide range of accommodations located here, including skyscraper hotels, standard chains, basic guesthouses, and charming boutiques. But looking further back from the water can bring up some hidden treasures, with the older (or, at least, less recently renovated) districts still possessing a certain storied charm with their aged look and more traditional markets. You'll find hostels, guesthouses, and a few luxury options to boot.
